The Beginning of God’s Creation


The Beginning of God’s Creation

Genesis 1:1-23

Boy we just finished the Book of Revelation and now we get to spend a short time in the Book of Genesis. I love this Book. I love God’s account of  creation because it is the truth. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see the all that evolution stuff is nothing but theories and very few theories ever make it to true fact.

The Biblical account of creation is ridiculed by atheists, patronized by liberals and even distorted by some conservatives. The fact remains that God’s account of creation was even quoted by Jesus Christ our Lord.

Mar 10:6  [But from the beginning of the creation] God made them male and female.

This also means that there was no gap in the time that God created the universe we live in and the time He created mankind, except for the day by day events. And these were literal 24 hour days. In other words this planet did not exist for millions of years before God put mankind on it. This verse even upsets some so called Christians.

God means what He says and He says what He means and our job is to listen to what God says. God’s account of creation is in full accord with true science. The Apostle Paul wrote to tell us about the false theories of evolution.

1Ti 6:20  O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and [oppositions of science falsely so called]:

Science by definition is: In a general sense, knowledge, or “certain” knowledge; the comprehension or understanding of “truth or facts” by the mind.  A collection of the general principles or leading truths relating to any subject.

You see to be science you have to have some facts. It takes more faith to believe in “evolution” than it does to become a “Christian”.

There are only two possible models for the origin of our world.

1.) Evolution with it’s theories.
2.) Creation as written in the word of God.

The theories of Darwin have proven to be so false that now some so called scientist use what is called Neo- Darwinism that does not resemble what Darwin said. Darwin himself said if his theories did not hold up then his whole philosophy would be wrong and “He was and It is”.

Genesis given to us by the Holy Spirit is the Book of Beginnings:

1.) The beginning of the Universe.
2.) The 1st Man.
3.) The 1st marriage.
4.) The 1st sin.
5.) The 1st sacrifice.
6.) The 1st murder.
7.) The 1st flood.
8.) The beginning of multiple languages.
9.) The beginning of:
a.) Governments
b.) Nations
c.) Religion
d.) The foundation of true history
e.) The nation of Israel

Apart from the Book of Genesis there is no other trustworthy explanation found for the origin of all we see.

If there is anything certain in this world, it is that there is absolutely no evidence that evolution is occurring today. There is no evidence of true vertical evolution!

No one has observed a star evolve from hydrogen.
No one has seen life evolve from chemicals.
No one has seen a higher species evolve from a lower species.
No one has seen a man evolve from an ape or anything like it.
No one has a clue how evolution can even work. They have no models to go by.
No one has ever found any evidence that evolution ever took place in all recorded history!
No fossil has ever been found with half scales and half feathers, or half legs and half wings, or a half developed heart or anything else.

Evolution must be accepted by faith and that makes it a religion and a false one at that.

If there is no evidence of evolution then by the process of elimination we must go back to what God said.

There is a key to all this:

Heb 11:6 says  But without faith it is impossible to please him: [for he that cometh to God must believe that he is], and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

You must believe that there is a God!

Whether people believe or not we have a record of our origins and no science has been able to prove them wrong but on the other hand the exact order of creation has been verified by scientists. In other words human life could not have taken place if Moses had gotten one step of creation out of place. Moses could not have possibly have gotten it all right without the help of the Holy Ghost.

2Ti 3:16 says  All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
2Ti 3:17  That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.

The Bible goes on to say:

1Jn 5:20  And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. [This is the true God], and eternal life.

How about a little faith in the word of God:

Heb 11:3  Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.

*****Our text:

Gen 1:1  In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

In the beginning God:

Does God exist?

God does not take the time to prove His existence. He simply says there is enough evidence to show that there is a God and the God of the Bible claims He is that God. I believe Him but He doesn’t need me or anyone else to believe because it does not change anything about His existence. The Bible itself is proof enough of His existence but look around you and you can see we live in a world that was did not happen by accident.

1.) The watchmaker theory:

If you wear a watch then you know there had to be a watchmaker! If you look outside at God’s creation and at night the glories of the heaven then you should assume that there was a heaven maker.

2.) This world is not in chaos:

The planets circle the sun in precise motion, The days are constant and consistent(24 hours). The sea has currents that stay consistent. The wind has it’s patterns. The system for rainfall is readily seen. All things living and that exist have an order. “It took someone with “intelligence” to do this.

3.) Mankind itself has a sense of morality though it seems in decay just as this world is aging rather than evolving. A blind evolutionary force could never produce a man with intellect, a will, a conscience, sensibility and so on. “Man has to be created in someone’s image!

Rom 2:14  For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves:
Rom 2:15  Which shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one another;)
Rom 2:16  In the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ according to my gospel.

In the book of Psalms we find this scripture:

Psa 19:1  The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.
Psa 19:2  Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge.
Psa 19:3  There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.
Psa 19:4  Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun,
Psa 19:5  Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race.
Psa 19:6  His going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof.

The heavens speak of God’s glory. Only God could have done this!

The Earth and all it’s beauty. It’s harmony and “intricacy” reveal the handiwork of God.

The Bible says:

Rom 1:18  For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;
Rom 1:19  Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.
Rom 1:20  For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
Rom 1:21  Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

We see God’s provision and His control:

Mat 5:45  That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.

Man’s conscience:

Joh 3:19  And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
Joh 3:20  For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
Joh 3:21  But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.

You see God has His existence in Himself:

Exo 3:14  And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you.

You see God revealed Himself to “all” the world so the world could be saved.

2Ti 3:16  All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
2Ti 3:17  That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.

God expects us to listen to what He says and we have a free will to do what we think.

2Pe 1:20  Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.
2Pe 1:21  For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.

The Bible is the “living” written word:

Heb 4:12  For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
Heb 4:13  Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.

THE BIBLE ACCURATELY PRESENTS THE SPECIAL REVELATION OF GOD AND OF GOD IN CHRIST!

When God gave the laws to Moses, He was specific about one thing and listed it first:

Exo 31:18  And he gave unto Moses, when he had made an end of communing with him upon mount Sinai, two tables of testimony, tables of stone, written with the finger of God.

Exo 34:14  For thou shalt worship no other god: for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God:

That means to not to lay prostrate or bow down to.

Exo 23:13  And in all things that I have said unto you be circumspect: and make no mention of the name of other gods, neither let it be heard out of thy mouth.

That means not to ever mention another god’s name.

Deu 6:14  Ye shall not go after other gods, of the gods of the people which are round about you;

That means to never walk behind other gods.

Deu 8:18  But thou shalt remember the LORD thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day.
Deu 8:19  And it shall be, if thou do at all forget the LORD thy God, and walk after other gods, and serve them, and worship them, I testify against you this day that ye shall surely perish.

That means never to forget these things that are written.

Deu 11:16  Take heed to yourselves, that your heart be not deceived, and ye turn aside, and serve other gods, and worship them;

That means to never allow ourselves to be deceived.

Deu 28:14  And thou shalt not go aside from any of the words which I command thee this day, to the right hand, or to the left, to go after other gods to serve them.

That means to never withdraw yourself from the word of God!

Jesus Christ said:

Mat 22:37  Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
Mat 22:38  This is the first and great commandment.

It behooves us to remember these things!

*****The words “create” and [“made” or “formed”]:

The word create (Hebrew bara) is used seven times in Genesis chapter one but is never used in chapters 2-4.

The words made or formed are used in these chapters.

The Bible stresses that these words have different meanings:

Gen 2:3  And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.

We can notice from their use that to “create” is God’s creating from nothing. When God uses something He has already created to make some something He uses the words made or formed, such as:

Gen 2:7  And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

God used the dust of the ground to form man.

*****We have a witness to creation, in fact more than one:

The Bible says:

Rev 3:14  And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, [the beginning of the creation of God];

We know these are the words of Jesus and He says He is the Amen and “the beginning of creation”.

The Book of John states:

Joh 1:1  In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
Joh 1:2  The same was in the beginning with God.
Joh 1:3  All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

Jesus said this on another occasion:

Mar 10:6  But from [the beginning of the creation] God made them male and female.

Again this proves that mankind was made at the beginning of creation and not millions of years later.

Peter also used this phrase:

2Pe 3:4  And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.

This verse was written of those that deny any creation. They are still around.

But God wrote:

Exo 20:8  Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.
Exo 20:9  Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:
Exo 20:10  But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:
Exo 20:11  For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.

Those are six literal days of creation!

Peter also wrote to those that deny these words would lead to your own destruction:

2Pe 3:16  As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction.

*****Heaven(that which is above) is used in three ways in the Bible:

1.) The Atmospheric heaven- (The troposphere):

We get our dew:

Deu 33:13  And of Joseph he said, Blessed of the LORD be his land, for the precious things of heaven, for the dew, and for the deep that coucheth beneath,
Deu 33:14  And for the precious fruits brought forth by the sun, and for the precious things put forth by the moon,
Deu 33:15  And for the chief things of the ancient mountains, and for the precious things of the lasting hills,
Deu 33:16  And for the precious things of the earth and fulness thereof, and for the good will of him that dwelt in the bush: let the blessing come upon the head of Joseph, and upon the top of the head of him that was separated from his brethren.

We get our frost:

Job 38:28  Hath the rain a father? or who hath begotten the drops of dew?
Job 38:29  Out of whose womb came the ice? and the hoary frost of heaven, who hath gendered it?
Job 38:30  The waters are hid as with a stone, and the face of the deep is frozen.

We get our rain and snow:

Isa 55:10  For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater:
Isa 55:11  So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

We get our wind:

Psa 78:26  He caused an east wind to blow in the heaven: and by his power he brought in the south wind.

We get our thunder:

1Sa 2:10  The adversaries of the LORD shall be broken to pieces; out of heaven shall he thunder upon them: the LORD shall judge the ends of the earth; and he shall give strength unto his king, and exalt the horn of his anointed.

We see the clouds:

Psa 147:8  Who covereth the heaven with clouds, who prepareth rain for the earth, who maketh grass to grow upon the mountains.

Where the birds fly:

Gen 1:20  And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.

This is a precious gift of God given to us during creation week!

2.) The “celestial” heaven:

Psa 33:6  By the word of the LORD were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth.

3.) The subject of this verse, THE DWELLING PLACE OF GOD:

The Apostle Paul said:

2Co 12:1  It is not expedient for me doubtless to glory. I will come to visions and revelations of the Lord.
2Co 12:2  I knew a man in Christ above fourteen years ago, (whether in the body, I cannot tell; or whether out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;) such an one caught up to the third heaven.

Jesus said:

Mat 6:9  After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

Where God sits:

Psa 2:4  He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.

Isa 66:1  Thus saith the LORD, The heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool: where is the house that ye build unto me? and where is the place of my rest?

Where God judges:

Gen 19:24  Then the LORD rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the LORD out of heaven;

Jos 10:11  And it came to pass, as they fled from before Israel, and were in the going down to Bethhoron, that the LORD cast down great stones from heaven upon them unto Azekah, and they died: they were more which died with hailstones than they whom the children of Israel slew with the sword.

The place of God’s blessings:

Exo 16:4  Then said the LORD unto Moses, Behold, I will rain bread from heaven for you; and the people shall go out and gather a certain rate every day, that I may prove them, whether they will walk in my law, or no.

Where God watches His people:

Deu 26:15  Look down from thy holy habitation, from heaven, and bless thy people Israel, and the land which thou hast given us, as thou swarest unto our fathers, a land that floweth with milk and honey.

Where God listens to prayers:

Psa 20:6  Now know I that the LORD saveth his anointed; he will hear him from his holy heaven with the saving strength of his right hand.

Where God makes His plans:

Psa 119:89  For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven.

The place where the saints go at death:

Gen 25:8  Then Abraham gave up the ghost, and died in a good old age, an old man, and full of years; and was gathered to his people.

Luk 23:43  And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise.

2Co 5:8  We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.

Php 1:23  For I am in a strait betwixt two, having a desire to depart, and to be with Christ; which is far better:

1Th 4:14  For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so [them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him].

We may not know a lot about Heaven but there is a good bit of information in the Bible:

1.) We know it is also the place of angels. (They have ranks)
2.) You know God created all souls probably at this time. They come from God and go back to God. Every time someone is born at that time God sends a soul to dwell in that person.
3.) God probably created demon at this time. They are different from the angels.
4.) We can only imagine what else is in Heaven. Jesus said:

Joh 14:2  [In my Father’s house are many mansions]: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.

*****The Earth

There is only one blue marble as an astronaut once said. This Earth we live on is the only planet throughout all the galaxies that God placed mankind(human life). People are starving all over this planet while money enough to feed them is wasted looking for life on other planets.

Our Text:

Gen 1:2  And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

We could say of this verse that God is assembling His building materials.

(without form and void)

The Hebrew word “tohu” is “form” and the Hebrew word “bohu” for “void” in this verse. Without form would mean a place that is desolate, desert, wasteland or empty place. The second word is similar meaning empty place an indistinguishable ruin.

In other words this place could not sustain life at this time. I believe we can look at the moon or some of the nearby planets and get an idea of what the Earth looked like before God brought it to life.

(darkness upon the deep)

The Hebrew word “choshek” is used here meaning total darkness, or no light at all. “God said it was so dark you could feel it”.

You know scientist say that nothing on this planet could be as it is if “darkness had not been created first”.

Don’t be fooled we may not know what anything looked like before God began creating but “darkness” was one of His creations.

Isa 45:7  I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things.

The “deep” at this point would probably mean the future location of the abyss or the place where the Seas would be located. We know this because the Holy Spirit was in control of the “Waters”.

(The Spirit)

We Hebrew word for God used in verse one was Elohim. This word is a plural. Now we see that the Holy Spirit was also involved with creation. As I pointed out in John 1:3:

Joh 1:3  All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

This is referring to Christ Our Lord, we know that the Holy Trinity was all involved in the creation of our universe.

In fact:

1.) The Father God planned it all from Heaven. (Intelligence)
2.) The Son of God performed the work. (Carpenter)
3.) The Holy Spirit sustains it or gives it life. (Regenerates)

Jesus prayed to the Father and said:

Joh 17:20  Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word;
Joh 17:21  That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.
Joh 17:22  And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:
Joh 17:23  I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.
Joh 17:24  Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.

Before God broke ground on His creation, He already put in place a means of Salvation. He knew what the world would do. He would not be God if He were caught by surprise. Has it ever dawned on you that nothing has ever dawned on God.

1Jn 3:19  And hereby we know that we are of the truth, and shall assure our hearts before him.
1Jn 3:20  For if our heart condemn us, [God is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things].

You know the world expects the Christian to prove everything in the Bible and science and archeology and documentation of God’s word is proven every day. But most of the world accepts the theory of evolution without the slightest bit of proof. How backward can we be.

This is actually blind faith of a false religion.

2Co 11:14  And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.

Satan has dug this thing in deep and people are to blind to see it and those in charge will not change because they know they would have to admit that the God of the Bible is after all the “Creator” of this universe.

Our text:

Gen 1:3  And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
Gen 1:4  And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.
Gen 1:5  And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.

I said earlier God was assembling His building materials because God is bringing life to this planet. It will begin with a garden. We all know to plant a garden you need soul, you need water and you need light. God is now ready to begin. Many things take place this very first day of creation.

I say this all the time to the kids class, God is not bound by our methods of making things. “God makes the light then He builds the flashlight”.

There are those that think that light is nothing but it is a creation. It has wavelength and other characteristics and it is the reason we can see. Light has been called a mode of motion. All scientist agree that the activity and energy of light was necessary to prepare the way for all life. God has everything in order and again Moses would have not known how to put things in the proper order.

Light has no material but is the most basic form of energy. Natural life cannot exist without life. Light warms, makes things grow and gives them color. God made light independent of other heavenly bodies. Notice God has not created a source for this light as of yet. This the one thing that allows for star light to exist because some stars are so far away the light that they produce could not possibly reach Earth but God solved this problem by creating light first.

Albert Einstein was able to construct his famous formula (E=MC squared) because light is the one thing in the entire universe that is constant and never changing. That is except Jesus Christ. That’s why Jesus said He was as light.

Now the building blocks are assembled!

The Bible says:

2Co 4:6  For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

and we must not forget:

Joh 8:12  Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.

and He does not change:

Mal 3:6  For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.

Jas 1:17  Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.

And He will be the Light of the Eternal Age:

Rev 21:23  And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof.

God who is the sovereign judge of all things to have joy or be pleased, determined that light was “good”. It brought Him pleasure unlike bad or evil.

God called the Light “day” and the Darkness He called “night”. You see God named this part of creation and not man. A day is a twenty four hour period unless understood by scripture to be different. When God spoke to Moses the Ten Commandments, He made it clear that the “six days” of creation were exactly six 24 hour days.

The Bible says:

Exo 20:11  For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.

Time as we know it on Earth has begun!

God gave us this time to fulfill the purpose He has for each and everyone of us. There is a reason for our lives and we are important to God.

Rom 9:11  (For the children being not yet born, neither having done any good or evil, that the purpose of God according to election might stand, not of works, but of him that calleth;)

2Ti 1:9  Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began,

Rom 8:28  And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

By the way not only did time begin but History, Mathematics Science, Astronomy, Geology, and many more things.

Jeremiah wrote:

Jer 10:12  He hath made the earth by his power, he hath established the world by his wisdom, and hath stretched out the heavens by his discretion.
Jer 10:13  When he uttereth his voice, there is a multitude of waters in the heavens, and he causeth the vapours to ascend from the ends of the earth; he maketh lightnings with rain, and bringeth forth the wind out of his treasures.

BUT GREATER THAN ALL THESE THINGS IS THE WRITTEN WORD OF GOD REACHING OUT TO ALL WHO WILL BELIEVE HIM!

Our Text:

Gen 1:6  And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.
Gen 1:7  And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so.
Gen 1:8  And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.

Two elements of great importance are found only on this Earth. There will never be another planet discovered by man that have these things in such abundance as Earth. They are water and oxygen and God placed them on this Earth before any life forms were created.

Firmament from the Hebrew “raqai” means an expanse or sky. The 1st heaven is created. This will be the place where the birds will fly and modern day aircraft.

Isa 40:22  It is he that sitteth upon the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers; that stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain, and spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in:

You know up unto the time of Christopher Columbus, the lost world thought the Earth was flat and that Columbus would sail off the edge of the Earth. The word of God had it right all along because it is God that sits on the circle of the Earth.

The lower waters would provide the Seas and all water on the Earth and the upper waters would provide protection from the future Sun. This created a green house effect on our world that would last until the flood of Noah’s day. Trapped between the two would be our breathable atmosphere.

Even in our day and time it is estimated that there  54 trillion tons of water suspended above us at any given moment. The annual rainfall and snowfall of this Earth could again cover the Earth up to about three feet deep if it fell all at once. God brought it all down one time but He promised it would never happen like that again. That’s why we have the rainbow. A sign that God is remembering His promise.

Because of the gravity of Earth and these elements that sustain us life can exist on our planet. There is not another planet like Earth and there will not be until God makes the new Earth.

We again should praise the Lord for such a gift:

Psa 148:4  Praise him, ye heavens of heavens, and ye waters that be above the heavens.
Psa 148:5  Let them praise the name of the LORD: for he commanded, and they were created.
Psa 148:6  He hath also stablished them for ever and ever: he hath made a decree which shall not pass.

Oh, by the way the Earth just got soaked with water on the entire surface maybe about three feet deep. The garden is now ready to plant. The Earth would soon be a tropical paradise.

Our text:

Gen 1:9  And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so.
Gen 1:10  And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good.
Gen 1:11  And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.
Gen 1:12  And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
Gen 1:13  And the evening and the morning were the third day.

Now if all the waters under heaven are gathered in one place then that only leaves one place for the land. The Earth was just one large continent at this time.

Notice in verse ten we see that God had said the gathering of the Seas and the dry land was good. At the end of day two, He had completed His work with the waters and the dry land and the first heaven or our atmosphere. This work was not good until the dry land appeared.

You might say why so much water. We know it is the Oceans that keep pollution under control on our planet, This take s a lot of salt water. The plants that are about to grow on this exposed earth will need a lot of carbon dioxide. If you listen to those from the Greenhouse religion you would think carbon dioxide is a bad thing. Nothing on this earth would be green without it. Our oceans absorb and emit Carbon dioxide. We humans also create carbon dioxide every time we breath. It is not a pollutant. It is not smog. It is a “Naturally” occurring invisible gas that is necessary on our planet.

God gave us the cycle of water along with constant patterns to keep our world pure:

The Bible says:

Ecc 1:5  The sun also ariseth, and the sun goeth down, and hasteth to his place where he arose.
Ecc 1:6  The wind goeth toward the south, and turneth about unto the north; it whirleth about continually, and the wind returneth again according to his circuits.
Ecc 1:7  All the rivers run into the sea; yet the sea is not full; unto the place from whence the rivers come, thither they return again.

Those waters still obey the word of God because of His Son:

Pro 8:23  I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was.
Pro 8:24  When there were no depths, I was brought forth; when there were no fountains abounding with water.
Pro 8:25  Before the mountains were settled, before the hills was I brought forth:
Pro 8:26  While as yet he had not made the earth, nor the fields, nor the highest part of the dust of the world.
Pro 8:27  When he prepared the heavens, I was there: when he set a compass upon the face of the depth:
Pro 8:28  When he established the clouds above: when he strengthened the fountains of the deep:
Pro 8:29  When he gave to the sea his decree, that the waters should not pass his commandment: when he appointed the foundations of the earth:
Pro 8:30  Then I was by him, as one brought up with him: and I was daily his delight, rejoicing always before him;
Pro 8:31  Rejoicing in the habitable part of his earth; and my delights were with the sons of men.

Why should we not believe the Bible when we read that Jesus control the elements when He was with us.

Mar 4:35  And the same day, when the even was come, he saith unto them, Let us pass over unto the other side.
Mar 4:36  And when they had sent away the multitude, they took him even as he was in the ship. And there were also with him other little ships.
Mar 4:37  And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship, so that it was now full.
Mar 4:38  And he was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and they awake him, and say unto him, Master, carest thou not that we perish?
Mar 4:39  And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.
Mar 4:40  And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith?
Mar 4:41  And they feared exceedingly, and said one to another, What manner of man is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?

1.) The entire dry land blossoms out in grass.
2.) Notice the edible herbs are already full grown and yielding seed to multiply.
3.) Notice the fruit tree already yielding it’s fruit.
Notice the definition of a fruit tree. The seed is inside the fruit. And we can also see that an apple tree will not grow an orange nor will an peach tree grow a pear. They have to be after their kind.

Scientist have tried to manipulate some cross bred trees but most fail and only those on similar families will even work out but they cannot reproduce themselves.

Now the atmosphere above has the main ingredient oxygen.

Job tells us it takes the wisdom not found in man:

Job 28:5  As for the earth, out of it cometh bread: and under it is turned up as it were fire.

Job 28:13  Man knoweth not the price thereof; neither is it found in the land of the living.

Job 28:18  No mention shall be made of coral, or of pearls: for the price of wisdom is above rubies.

But Jesus says:

Mat 6:25  Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?
Mat 6:26  Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?
Mat 6:27  Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?
Mat 6:28  And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:
Mat 6:29  And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
Mat 6:30  Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?
Mat 6:31  Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?
Mat 6:32  (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.
Mat 6:33  But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
Mat 6:34  Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

The Bible says:

Psa 104:1  Bless the LORD, O my soul. O LORD my God, thou art very great; thou art clothed with honour and majesty.
Psa 104:2  Who coverest thyself with light as with a garment: who stretchest out the heavens like a curtain:
Psa 104:3  Who layeth the beams of his chambers in the waters: who maketh the clouds his chariot: who walketh upon the wings of the wind:
Psa 104:4  Who maketh his angels spirits; his ministers a flaming fire:
Psa 104:5  Who laid the foundations of the earth, that it should not be removed for ever.
Psa 104:6  Thou coveredst it with the deep as with a garment: the waters stood above the mountains.
Psa 104:7  At thy rebuke they fled; at the voice of thy thunder they hasted away.
Psa 104:8  They go up by the mountains; they go down by the valleys unto the place which thou hast founded for them.
Psa 104:9  Thou hast set a bound that they may not pass over; that they turn not again to cover the earth.
Psa 104:10  He sendeth the springs into the valleys, which run among the hills.
Psa 104:11  They give drink to every beast of the field: the wild asses quench their thirst.
Psa 104:12  By them shall the fowls of the heaven have their habitation, which sing among the branches.
Psa 104:13  He watereth the hills from his chambers: the earth is satisfied with the fruit of thy works.
Psa 104:14  He causeth the grass to grow for the cattle, and herb for the service of man: that he may bring forth food out of the earth;
Psa 104:15  And wine that maketh glad the heart of man, and oil to make his face to shine, and bread which strengtheneth man’s heart.
Psa 104:16  The trees of the LORD are full of sap; the cedars of Lebanon, which he hath planted;
Psa 104:17  Where the birds make their nests: as for the stork, the fir trees are her house.
Psa 104:18  The high hills are a refuge for the wild goats; and the rocks for the conies.
Psa 104:19  He appointed the moon for seasons: the sun knoweth his going down.
Psa 104:20  Thou makest darkness, and it is night: wherein all the beasts of the forest do creep forth.
Psa 104:21  The young lions roar after their prey, and seek their meat from God.
Psa 104:22  The sun ariseth, they gather themselves together, and lay them down in their dens.
Psa 104:23  Man goeth forth unto his work and to his labour until the evening.
Psa 104:24  O LORD, how manifold are thy works! in wisdom hast thou made them all: the earth is full of thy riches.

Our text:

Gen 1:14  And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:
Gen 1:15  And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.
Gen 1:16  And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.
Gen 1:17  And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth,
Gen 1:18  And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good.
Gen 1:19  And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.

Remember that light from the first day, now God builds the continuing source of that light.

1.) These lights will to divide the day from the night.
2.) To be signs
3.) To show the seasonal changes.
4.) To separate days
5.) To separate the years.
6.) To let them be lights in the second heaven.

The moon has it quarters to mark weeks and months.
The sun rises and falls daily and marks the seasons and the years. We get our minutes and hours of each day from the rotation of the Earth.

You see all those beautiful stars and planets and suns and moons do have a purpose. THEY ARE FOR LIGHTS IN HEAVEN TO LIGHT UP GOD’S EARTH.

We can see a few stars on a clear night with the eye but there are millions of them:

Psa 147:4  He telleth the number of the stars; he calleth them all by their names.
Psa 147:5  Great is our Lord, and of great power: his understanding is infinite.

Most scientist agree that the moon could not have just drifted into orbit around our planet. It is much to large to do so by accident. The moon had to be hand placed in it’s location. Only God has those kind of hands.

Job 26:7  He stretcheth out the north over the empty place, and hangeth the earth upon nothing.

The Bible says:

Isa 40:26  Lift up your eyes on high, and behold who hath created these things, that bringeth out their host by number: he calleth them all by names by the greatness of his might, for that he is strong in power; not one faileth.

Isa 42:5  Thus saith God the LORD, he that created the heavens, and stretched them out; he that spread forth the earth, and that which cometh out of it; he that giveth breath unto the people upon it, and spirit to them that walk therein:

Psa 8:3  When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained;

Our text:

Gen 1:20  And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.
Gen 1:21  And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
Gen 1:22  And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth.
Gen 1:23  And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.

The Earth is ready to sustain living creatures. I didn’t read where a single thing evolved into anything did you?

The animal kingdom begins!

God spoke and the waters were filled with living creatures. One spoonful of water contains millions of microscopic creatures. Some are so small that, that spoonful of water would be the same to them as an ocean to us. God creates big and small with the same ease. Notice whales were also included.

The fish were swimming and the birds were already flying and to those that still ask that familiar question, YES THE CHICKEN DID COME BEFORE THE EGG!

We know a lot of animal life is extinct now but there are still over 30,000 kinds of fish and over 9 thousand kinds of birds.

The Bible says that the birds and the fish were both made on the same day. Another blow to evolutionist.

Only God can create. Evolution and man made theories have no place alongside Biblical creation. There is no life without the regenerating power of the Holy Spirit.

And there is no “salvation” without Jesus Christ!

Let’s pray!
